Karim and Brian

Mentoring is the Key to Business Success

Karim developed a way to deliver affordable dental services to his community in Conakry, Guinea, but still had trouble reaching new patients. He was considering expanding to a second location when he met his mentor Brian, the founding COO of Build-A-Bear Workshops in the US, on MicroMentor.

Understanding the complexities of managing multiple locations, Brian suggested that Karim concentrate on building a larger customer base through active outreach. Today, Karim still has just one location, but has tripled his customers, doubled his revenue, hired three full-time employees, and has improved the dental health of an estimated 12,000 local community members.

Mentoring Changes Lives. One Connection at a Time.
